Now, if you don't live in snow country, this post won't mean much to you. But if you live in snow country where its below zero for a few days and nights then in the single digits during the day and still zero at night and then in the 30s and 40s during the day and in the single digits at night --- you know what I mean. Our 12+ inches of snow began to melt during those 30s and 40s but froze into solid ice at night. That happened for a couple days and then the temperature took a dive and we're left with a sheet of ice over our yard. Check this out...
Yaktrax Tracks; see the ice beneath the snow?
Yaktrax Walkers are a miracle product. Until I bought them, I literally couldn't cross the yard to gather eggs or walk to the mailbox or go outside to play with Lacey. The ice beneath the snow was so slippery that I couldn't stand which is dangerous particularly with my new knee. Now, I strap them onto my boots and I can walk anywhere, confidently, on packed snow and ice. Just like they promise.
